What: Christian Louboutin ‘Very Very’ wedges
When: June, 2011
Where: Los Angeles, California
With: Blue dress (ASOS), red belt (my mum’s)
As much as I’d loved San Francisco, I must admit, I was looking forward to the comparative heat of Southern California, partly so I could get back into my heels and dresses, rather than having to stay wrapped up, and in flats, all the time. Unfortunately, I had to wait a few more days: L.A. in June is prone to a weather pattern known as the June Gloom, and our first few days there were on the chilly side (although it did normally warm up by mid-afternoon, thankfully).
This outfit was worn on the first warm day we had, and I was so happy to be able to dress like “me” again!
(Please excuse my feet… And that weird dent in the side of the shoe, which I didn’t even notice until I downloaded the photo. I packed them really carefully – in fact, I had a sepparate bag just for shoes! – but they must’ve got pushed out of shape a bit while travelling. They’re OK now, though, thankfully!)
The shoes are my Christian Louboutin ‘Very Very’ wedges. I promise I did take some non-red shoes with me to California. Just… not very many. Well, you know what I always say: red may not technically be “neutral”, but it is MY neutral – at least where shoes are concerned, anyway!
I actually bought this dress back in the winter, because I knew it would probably sell out in my size if I waited for the right weather to wear it. Then I had to pack it away for months, while it snowed and hailed outside: gah! Still, it got to see the light of the California day, and I’m hoping the weather back home will warm up sufficiently that I can get a few more wears out of it before it has to get packed away again!
